Welcome to NarFFL 2017

And we’re back.

You ever have one of those mornings, where you wake up and the only thing you remember is that you drank too much? It usually happens after 48 hours in Vegas, or right after your team decides to move to LA (or...Vegas). Well, that’s how the mods are feeling right now. Which means we’re looking for the greasiest buffet on the strip to help us rally for NARFFL 2017.

Congratulations to /u/familynight. His underdog story is the stuff of legends. Stumbling into the playoffs with an 8-5 record and 118 pts/game, his team’s consistency through the playoffs allowed him clinch the horn and add his name to a very short list of legends. A list that, oddly enough, includes our famed programmer /u/Surye.

Of course, that win was back in 2011. So the question must be asked, of /u/Surye, /u/familynight, and of all the champions: What have you done for us lately? Nothing.

It’s a new season. The rosters are empty, the leagues are being injected with new blood, the mods are sobering up, and the lottery will be live Aug 3th @ 4PM PDT.

NarFFL 2017 begins soon.


Signing Up

Firstly, if you are brand new and haven’t signed up with NarFFL.com you should do that right now. There’s a big orange box up in the corner, click it, then send us your social security number.

In lieu of your social security number we will accept a case of Pliny the Elder (if you’re on the west coast), Sip O’ Sunshine (if you’re on the east coast), or Hope and Despair (if you’re in the middle of the country)*.

You should also make sure you have a FleaFlicker account, and it should be the same FleaFlicker account you’ve always used. Not a new one because you’re embarrassed of your history and you want to start over again (like a /r/gonewild poster). We’ve have too many children and vices between us to change things up on the back end because you “forgot a password” somewhere last season.

Registration will open at August 3rd @ 4PM PDT it will remain open for 72 hours. Once that period ends, we will randomly pick from this pool to fill the farm league. To reiterate: you MUST have a FleaFlicker account before you enter. Your Reddit account must also have 10 comment karma and it has to have been created before July 26, 2017. So get out there and make some (positive) posts on /r/fantasyfootball.

If you’re unlucky in love, life, and NarFFL, and don’t get picked in the lotto, you’ll be added to the waitlist in the order you entered the lottery. The wait-list is constantly in use during the season so don’t fret, but signing up early is advised.

Please note that the only data received using reddit authentication is your user name, account creation date, and karma score. No other private information is given to us, but, if you do want to get a little more personal, you can Like the Official NarFFL Facebook page.

*Alcohol preferences vary by mod.

**Dates above are our goals, but if anything slips we'll communicate it here as soon we can.


Leagues

Premier League

Size

144 teams - 12 leagues with 12 teams in each.

Draft

Draft dates are agreed upon by the members of each individual 12 man league. Talk to your commish about this.

Playoffs

For each league, playoffs will be the standard format.

Relegation

Each league will have two relegated teams. To keep owners active that have not made it to the playoffs in their individual leagues, we are giving the winner and runner-up of the consolation playoffs (in each 12 man league) a pass on being relegated. The two relegated owners will be the two lowest ranked teams (by Fleaflicker) out of the remaining four consolation playoff teams. So that means even if a team finishes last in the regular season, they are able to escape relegation by making it to the consolation playoff championship game. The 24 Premier League owners are relegated to the Major League the following year.

Major League

Size

288 teams - 24 leagues with 12 teams in each.

You have to log in to Fleaflicker by August 9th to avoid getting replaced.

By logging in, you confirm that you wish to participate in NarFFL 2017.

Draft

There is a default draft slot set for each of the Major leagues - September 3rd at 3PM EDT. This is the weekend before NFL Kickoff. This can be changed if the 12 owners in the league can agree on a new date & time. Just have one of your league members fill out this form with the name of your league and the new date and time.

Promotion

Win your league and you move up. All 24 league winners earn a ticket to the Premier League to fill the 24 slots left by the relegated Premier League members.

Relegation

Each league will have two relegated teams. To keep owners active that have not made it to the playoffs in their individual league, we are giving the winner and runner-up of the consolation playoffs (in each 12 man league) a pass on being relegated. The two relegated owners will be the two lowest ranked teams (by Fleaflicker) out of the remaining four consolation playoff teams. So that means even if a team finishes last in the regular season, they are able to escape relegation by making it to the consolation playoff championship game. The 48 Major League owners are relegated to the Minor League the following year.

Minor League

Size

576 teams - 48 leagues with 12 teams in each.

You have to log in to Fleaflicker by August 13th to avoid getting replaced.

By logging in, you confirm that you wish to participate in NarFFL 2017.

Draft

There is a default draft slot set for each of the Minor leagues - September 3rd at 3PM EDT. This is the weekend before NFL Kickoff. This can be changed if the 12 owners in the league can agree on a new date & time. Just have one of your league members fill out this form with the name of your league and the new date and time.

Promotion

Win your league and you move up. All 48 league winners earn a ticket to the Major League to fill the 48 slots left by the relegated Major League members.

Relegation

Each league will have two relegated teams. To keep owners active that have not made it to the playoffs in their individual league, we are giving the winner and runner-up of the consolation playoffs (in each 12 man league) a pass on being relegated. The two relegated owners will be the two lowest ranked teams (by Fleaflicker) out of the remaining four consolation playoff teams. So that means even if a team finishes last in the regular season, they are able to escape relegation by making it to the consolation playoff championship game. The 96 Minor League owners are relegated out of NarFFL. These owners are welcome to try and sign up for the Farm League the following year.

Farm League

Size

384 teams - 32 leagues with 12 teams in each.

Members

Every year the Farm League will be comprised of new people. As opposed to the other tiers, no spot in the Farm League is guaranteed year to year.

Draft

There is a default draft slot set for each of the Farm leagues - September 3rd at 3PM EDT. This is the weekend before NFL Kickoff. This can be changed if the 12 owners in the league can agree on a new date & time. Just have one of your league members fill out this form with the name of your league and the new date and time.

Promotion

Three teams from each Farm league will be promoted to the Minor League the following year.

  1. The Champion
  2. The Runner-Up
  3. The team with the highest single-week score during the regular season (excluding 1 & 2). That means that ANY team is capable of having a week that will get it promoted at any time. We chose this as our third criteria to keep everyone fully invested the whole year.

Relegation

All teams that are not promoted will be removed from the league in the off-season and will have to sign up again the following year.


Notes

Unclaimed Spots

After the lottery is completed and returning players have signed into their accounts on FleaFlicker, some spots may be unfilled, either by players who decided to quit (see also: The 49ers) or by players that couldn't make the commitment. These spots are filled from the tier below based on rankings from the previous year (Majors->Premier, Minors->Majors, Farm->Minor, Waitlist->Farm) in a trickle-up fashion. Rankings are based on wins first, then points scored. An invite is good for 24 hours, after which it will go to the next person in line. This is a first come first served promotion. An invite is not a guarantee at a spot.

Draft Rankings

Draft rankings are set when the leagues are activated, which is done early in the pre-season. So please, do yourself the favor of resetting your rankings close to your draft. We would especially encourage this if there is even a remote possibility you are going to miss your draft. This can be done on the 'Draft Ranking' tab within the 'Draft' Page. The selector is on the top right.

A note from Fleaflicker

"Please let your users know this: They must reset their draft rankings to "Redraft" right before the draft if they want to use our most up-to-date rankings or else they'll use whatever rankings we had when you went live and activated the league... Note that their custom draft rankings will be erased by doing this, but it's the best way to get our experts' rankings before the draft if they have none, etc."
